Join us on August 22 at 8PM for Payadora Tango Ensemble! Close your eyes and be swept away to Argentina as you listen to some traditional Argentinean Folk and Tango music in beautiful St. James Cathedral.
“Each musician is a star soloist in their own right. Playing together has allowed them to develop and mature turning Payadora into a superstar group.” – The Whole Note
Founded in 2013, Payadora has quickly become one of Toronto’s most vibrant and sought-after acts. Payadora performs an expansive repertoire of original compositions and their own arrangements of Argentinean Folk Music and Tango. Their broad scope in tango draws from the height of Buenos Aires’ Tango tradition, including compositions by De Caro, Pugliese, Troilo, and Salgan, to the masterful, contemporary sounds of Astor Piazzolla and beyond. Drawing from eclectic backgrounds in Classical, Jazz, Latin, Eastern European folk music, and improvisation, Payadora’s performances exude technical virtuosity, playful spontaneity, and rhythmic vitality.
